This is your typical basic, Motel 6. The room was clean, bathroom was clean. Basic amenities. No carpeting on the floor, which was a plus in my book. Not your typical filthy, overused carpeting that you find in many budget motels. Owner was friendly and efficient. Good price and good enough for an inexpensive night's stay.

We had to make a stop on our trip back from the Black Hills South Dakota and needed a place that allowed multiple dogs. The room was large, clean and actually quite modern. It was on the first floor which we didn't have to worry about our dogs waking anyone up with their running back and forth and I loved... More

I will say that our room was clean but that is about it. First off, a ground floor room is really a sub basement room with windows that are at ground level. There was at least one family staying there and the cooking smells were awful in the hallway. The room was extremely small. There is no chair or even... More

As a Senior Contributor, I have come to rely upon opinions of others before making reservations anywhere. This hotel was the most disappointing of all the Motel 6's I have ever stayed. By the way, folks, those are not wood floors, that is linoleum made to look like wood. I paid about $56 to stay here and if I could... More

As I said, it's just a Motel 6...known for cheap, clean & very basic rooms. They were newly remodeled with nice more modern furnishings. Even the wood floors were nice which I have a hard time wrapping my mind around since I am used to carpeted motel floors. Anyway, it was clean, quiet & served it's purpose. The only real... More

This motel is now clean, new and great value. I have stayed here in past more than a year ago and now it is an all new motel 6 with new flooring, furninshings. What impressed me is the price and value you get for an all new removated motel and is in great location with other motels and restaurants.

Pretty quiet, a comfortable bed (some kind of pillow top, a bit soft but not bad). Room was clean and safe. The guy running the place was quite friendly. It has in-wall heat/AC units. I didn't notice any difference regardless of the setting I had it on, and the fan ran constantly. It isn't loud, but might bother a super-sensitive... More

Although my gps indicated this was a Super 8, it is really a Motel 6. The motel has undergone a complete renovation. The rooms are modern and clean, the staff are very helpful and you can't beat the price...$55 for 2 adults...and no pet fee. There is plenty of parking and several restaurants are very close. We have stayed here... More

We were road weary travellers, stopped for a cheap room. Front desk guy wore a dirty torn shirt, lobby looked kind of disgusting. I was scared to enter the room. Well was I surprised. Room looked very good. Apparently the hotel was just revamped. Out came gross hotel carpet and down went decent laminate flooring. Beds had new duvet covers,... More
